Description

In subversion is the file
debwrt-headers-brcm47xx-Broadcom-b43-2.6.36.2-angel-2.0-1.tar.gz
It can be found in $TOP/debian/package/debwrt-kernel-headers/

How is that file generated?

Is 2.6.36.2 a reference to a kernel version?

How to update that file to new kernel versions?

Why is it in SVN???

Replying to stappers:

It can be found in $TOP/debian/package/debwrt-kernel-headers/

How is that file generated?

make openwrt/all
make debian/package/debwrt-kernel-headers

Is 2.6.36.2 a reference to a kernel version?

Yes!

How to update that file to new kernel versions?

svn co some revision
make openwrt/all
make debian/package/debwrt-kernel-headers

Why is it in SVN???

To allow using the Emdebian based cross compile environment without the need for going through a lengthy OpenWrt compile. It then uses 2.6.32.2 kernel headers to cross compile debian packages who need interaction with the kernel( for example libnl ). Some time ago I updated the headers file in SVN to a newer kernel version.
